Lindex picks DHL for freight operations – Logistics Manager Magazine

Swedish fashion chain Lindex has chosen DHL Global Forwarding to handle all its all freight operations.

Lindex’s products are available in around 490 stores across 18 markets as well as via e-commerce in 30 countries.

Maria Fransson, Lindex’s transport and customs manager, said: “Working with DHL again provides us with a high degree of a more reliable supply chain. Due to this optimization we achieve cost savings and are able to focus attention on other areas of our network for improvement, such as growing the digital side of the business.”

DHL Global Forwarding manages freight consolidation and distribution to Lindex. Cargo must be shipped from 240 factories managed by 140 suppliers around the world to one of three regional distribution centres in Sweden, the Czech Republic and Saudi Arabia. DHL oversees the ocean, air and rail transport for full and less than container load of the Swedish fashion chain’s cargo volumes from Asia to Europe and the Middle East.
